May day, May day – it was Bowens anniversary!
Twas a riot day on the 1st of May back in 2001 in London when Jo and I tied the knot. 8 years on and no one is rioting for us. What is wrong with these people?
We celebrated with gifts and a lovely dinner at the Cantina Vinopolis at No 1 Bank End, London SE1 9BU.
We shared two bottles of Caracter Shiraz Malbec ’07 from the Argentinian vineyards of Bodegas Santa Ana, Mendoza, and had the Pink Veal Escalope Steak with Grilled Mediterranean Vegetables, Buttered New Potatoes and Veal Jus (Delicious). The atomosphere was pleasant. The vast Victorian arches were impressive.
I don’t know if the Cantina Vinopolis knew it was our anniversary, but what a suprise we had when the bill arrived and we saw we had only been charged for one bottle instead of two. (damn Jo we should have had three… ha ha ha!)
Highly recommended, not to expensive (if you are lucky enough to score a free bottle of wine). (4/5). 🙂
